senators not acted yesterday, you likely would have seen obama offer his own plan. but the senators did act and their plan is the plan. the last thing the white house wants to do is blow up this fragile coalition. congressman mario diaz balart out of florida. thank you for your time. >> great pleasure being here. >> absolutely. first let me get your thoughts on the likelihood of this deal being reached. we now know from the white house, the president will give the remarks within the hour he basically is in line with the principles that were proposed by the bipartisan group and if there's dissession or divide, what is it? >> well, remember what the senators did and glad they did that, put together principles and yet to see from the senate language. us in the house trying for years to have the legislative language and should have that relatively soon. i don't think, though, there's a lot of difference between the principles of the senators put on on the table with what some of us believe we can put in legislative language but the devil's in the details, obviously. >> absolutely. some of the d

's by president obama or senator feinstein or you, that would actually work, i think we've got to stop talking about what makes us feel better and what maybe -- and what actually works or what sounds good because when the emotions are this raw for all of us, we all want to, quote, do something, but we have to do something that works. the fact is in the three massacres we're talking about, aurora, tucson, and newtown, these guys had their guns legally. i mean, i hate saying their names so i say the tucson shooter, he passed an instant background check, and the assault weapons ban had failed in his case, the guy in aurora still would have had the other two weapons he used to commit his crimes. >> kellyanne. you skillfully avoided my question, which is do you agree with the sandy hook father's premise that the right of his child's life supersedes the right to own a high-powered weapon or high capacity magazine. >> we have something called the second amendment. if politicians out there don't like it, they're going to have to amend the constitution. you're not going to get very far because as you s

of united states senators are really in line with what president obama has been calling for, you know, really all the way through his first term. and i think president obama's advocacy and his focus on the need for comprehensive immigration reform during his campaign really created the space for and quite frankly the outcome of the election created this space for this bipartisan cooperation, but, you know, i want to give you a healthy but. there is, you know, the road is littered with gangs of senators, good intentions that were consumed by the legislative process, and, you know, what i'm hopeful about in the house is certainly that the majority of democrats in the house embrace comprehensive immigration reform and the principles that were put forward by the gang of eight, and i'm confident when president obama talks about it today it will be similar. but the question is will the speaker who is dealing with still his group of really extreme republicans who have already signalled not very good comments about the proposal, you know, will he eventually let the will of the house work, the

blush, they look similar, except president obama says, let's get this done now and the senate plan says, let's secure the bordzer. >> they are broadly similar. if you read the outlines, you can see much of the same language and the same issues brought up. but there are two area where is there is some difference, you might say significant difference, may be enough to scuttle the bill without a compromise. the number-1 issue is this commission, to make sure that the border is secure before the plan gets implemented. in the gang of 8, they mention a plan that they released yesterday. they mention a commission of border, state governors and community activists that would have to -- issue recommendations that the border was secure before the plan is implemented. the president doesn't mention this at all. what he has said in his speech today and in the report that he issued to reporters is that he's already cracked down on the immigrants coming over and that there is no mention of anything happening to be ratified before this pathway to citizenship begins. now to be fair, in the senate gang o
obama appointed three people to the national labor relations board without the traditional senate confirmation process. he did so by using his recess appointment power. senate republicans objected. they argued that he couldn't do that because at the time the senate was still meeting in what's called a pro-forma session, a super brief session sometimes just lasting a few minutes. that's been used by democrats and republicans explicitly to keep presidents from making these so-called recess appointments. well, the obama administration countered that he had the power to make those recess appointments because the senate was, practically speaking, and for all other intents and purposes, in recess. well this past friday the white house lost that argument in court. a three-judge panel on a federal court of appeals in washington, d.c. ruled that president obama's recess appointments were unconstitutional. wouldn't you know it, all three of those panel judges were appointed by republicans presidents. well, white house spokesperson jay carney said the decision went against the traditional ba
